Are you ready? Busy is no excuse!

are you ready

The last three week’s have been busy. I’ve been in California starting work on a doctoral program at my Alma Mater, and —at last— it’s time to go home.

My work here is almost done, and I have to catch that plane, but there are so many loose ends I need to tie up.

Will I be ready in time? Either way I have to go.

Revelation 22:12 contain some of the very last words of Jesus Christ to mankind:

“Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense with me, to repay everyone for what he has done.”

Quite simply, are you ready?

Either way, when he comes, it’s time to go.

For those who have rejected his rule, it will be time to face their judgement.

For everyone who will repent of sin, turning from it to God for forgiveness, trusting only in his sacrifice on the cross to cleanse them and make them righteous… it will be the day of undeserved reward!

Busy or not, either way, we all have to go.

Are you forgetting your CCTV?

Like the absent minded arsonists in this video, most people seem to forget that their movements are being constantly recorded and will one day be used as evidence against them.

How terrible it will be to be in the dock and have the video of your own inbuilt CCTV replayed. There will be no excuses possible, and no question about the verdict, just the crushing realisation that you’ve done what you knew was so terribly wrong, and now you’ve been caught, exposed and are about to be punished. 

Thankfully God offers us all the most remarkable terms for all who’ll accept them:

– Repent of your sin, confessing it and turning from it now, before you’re brought to His court.
– Beg Him for his forgiveness, and he takes the punishment on Himself, placing it upon his Son who died in the place of sinners!

Now that’s quite an offer, considering what we all have recorded!
